Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Darker Side of Twilight: A Coming of Age Adventure
Deep in the forest is a clearing. It has been swept clean. This is where the dead will come to dance. And it is here, on the darker side of twilight, that a small group of boys set up camp, and things start to go terribly wrong… Many enter the Mbora Trials and their sole aim is to receive the snake symbol, inked on the left shoulder. This prestigious tattoo is the ultimate mark of warriorhood. For a small group of locals taking part there is only one thought, to get through the terrifying ordeals in one piece. When the coolest boy in the village joins the trials, the others are surprised. Whatever his reason for being here is, it has nothing to do with proving himself worthy. Two outsiders also join the group. The first is Nuhu, a boy the king believes has arrived according to an ancient legend. The second is Mongoose, an odd, watchful boy, with an intimate knowledge of the spirit world and a deep mistrust of Nuhu. The Mbora Trials quickly turn sinister. An evil shaman, manah demons and water sprites target the boys. With one boy missing, presumed dead, and the trials drawing to a close, the boy’s fears are transformed into something deeper and more primitive. They are coerced into organizing a manhunt where they must turn on the weakest in the group, and kill him. A grand illusion, deathly fire and courage guided by love and a sense of brotherhood, influence the choices the boys make and prove they truly are mbora, but on their own terms. “Jonah Ian’s ‘Low Fantasy’ creates a rich world, full of dark magic and scary characters. The intricately woven plot is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.” – The Ormskirk Fantasy Review 2018
